The cheapest apartment in Toronto right now is $900 and was probably a garage
Finding a reasonable apartment in Toronto can be challenging.
Rents recently hit a four-year low due to the pandemic. In March, the median one-bedroom rent in Toronto was at just $1,750, the lowest in four years.
Still, it is difficult to find places for under $1,000 a month and they are usually dingy basement units.
The apartment for rent at 1278 Davenport Road, unit U A, is listed for $900 a month.
This Regal Heights unit used to be an Airbnb but due to the lockdown and travel restrictions, the owner is now moving to a long-term rental, real estate agent Son Dam of Nuland Realty tells blogTO.
An old listing of the property on Zoocasa shows a garage where a unit is now.
The place is small — with one bedroom just big enough to fit the queen bed.
It is designed like a hotel unit with a built-in television, mini-fridge and sitting area.
There is no kitchen.
Thankfully it does have a bathroom.
The upside is, if you like the decor, the place comes fully furnished.
It doesn't have a parking spot but it is close to the TTC.
While a one-year lease is preferred, Dam says this is negotiable. This place could be a steal, if you don't mind living tiny.
